Asking department for GRE applicant stats


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on this. For departments that don't indicate an average GRE score for admitted students, is it appropriate to email the department to ask for such information? Could it be frowned upon?

Along the same line of questioning, does anyone know if UC Berkeley produces summaries similar to the University of Washington's Department Summaries?


All I have been able to find is the NRC data through http://graduate-school.phds.org/, but that is slightly dated and not necessarily accurate anymore based on the more thorough Washington summaries I linked to.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, I don't think it would be frowned upon at all. I've done it to a few schools and they all seemed pretty receptive.

Although one school pretty much told me to not apply because my scores did not equal a high enough number in the formula they use so it can be valuable/disheartening.
